15:15-17:00 Roundtable Discussion: Gender Equality, Diversity and Critique. Transnational Perspectives

The roundtable invites the PRO GED partners to discuss current challenges posed by the global circulation of terminologies of gender and diversity and the different ways in which they are understood and put into practice. How can a transnational perspective contribute to selfcritically evaluating the adjustments and transformations these concepts undergo? How can they remain productive as tools of analysis and critique in specific contexts?
